Not Myself

I feel like I cannot
be myself around you anymore.

I feel like you’re judging me
for my imperfections.

My words are like eggshells;
I’m so careful not to
say something that would upset you.

I cannot be open with you.

I cannot bare my soul
to someone I used to trust
to not criticize me.

Now all I hear from your lips
are cutting remarks
that make me wish
I was invisible to you.

I wish I never knew you.
